Home to Home Program: Keeping Pets Out of the Shelter 
Seattle Humane is working hard to keep families together through its community outreach programs, but sometimes pet guardians have to make the very difficult decision to find new homes for their furry friends. Rather than go through the stressful process of surrendering them to our shelter, pet guardians now have the option of using Seattle Humane’s Home to Home program. This direct-to-adopter tool lets people communicate with prospective adopters, and find the right new home for their pets. The Home to Home program has had an amazing response since it launched almost a month ago, with 14 lucky pets finding new homes. Many incoming surrenders to Seattle Humane have been canceled recently, because Home to Home gave pet guardians the right tools to handle rehoming on their own. If you’re needing to rehome a pet or looking to grow your family, please visit

Save the Date for Seattle Humane’s Next Estate Planning Workshop.
On Wednesday, August 12, from 10 to 11:30 am, Seattle Humane, Northwest Harvest, The Museum of Flight and Rainier Scholars will host the second session of their Estate Planning Workshop series, “Stepping Stones of Estate Planning: Selecting Advisors and Creating Your Plan.” During this Zoom workshop, a panel of health and legal professionals will provide information on what you should consider in selecting those individuals who will help execute your estate planning and health care directive, as well as the kind of plan to create that is appropriate for your needs. Watch your email for further details to be provided at a later date. Space will be limited. In the meantime, to learn more about how you can support animals who need us most for years to come, visit, or contact Scott Fraser, Esq., Seattle Humane’s Major and Planned Giving Director at (425) 373-5387.

Adoption by Appointment: Under Seattle Humane’s new adoptions-by-appointment system, prospective adopters will first be asked to identify the pet they’re interested in taking home and fill out a pre-adoption questionnaire. A Seattle Humane team member will contact applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and there will be an over-the-phone advising process to ensure they are a good match for the dog, cat, or critter they wish to adopt. Seattle Humane does not have a set timeline for when an adopter might be invited to campus for an in-person meeting with an adoption candidate, but people will have the option of placing a hold on a shelter animal in the meantime. More details about the new system are available at

Tuxes & Tails will be a Virtual Event, September 26
"While our hope had been to gather in person this fall, we believe moving forward with a large gathering would not best serve our community. Instead, Tuxes & Tails will happen in a virtual format and will be a fun and interactive experience for everyone, and an opportunity to connect with the other animal lovers and philanthropists who support Seattle Humane each year. We hope you will join us in celebrating how much we have accomplished under extraordinary circumstances, and supporting the work we continue to do and expand upon. The September 26 gala will include a live auction (with some incredible wine lots you won’t want to miss!), the critically-important Fund A Need, adoptable animals, and more! For those of you who have already purchased tickets for the event, please consider converting that ticket purchase to a donation. If you would rather receive credit for a ticket purchase to attend Tuxes & Tails 2021, or receive a refund, please email. For all ticket holders, you will have additional benefits for our virtual event, based on ticket level." Tickets and more info.

Become a MEOW Guardian Angel: A "Guardian Angel" is a person who cares deeply for an adult cat or cats, but isn't in the position to adopt them. This person pre-pays the adoption fee so that when someone is interested in adopting a cat or cats, the fee is waived. At any given time, MEOW has many adult cats who have Guardian Angels, blessed by the person who wants them to find a home, there will be no adoption fee.

Vouchers for Free Public Spay/Neuter Surgeries Available through MEOW: Thanks to grant funds received, MEOW continues to provide needed spay/neuter surgery support to those in our community. Funds are available for dogs, feral or free-roaming cats, cats belonging to anyone needing financial assistance, and cats who qualify for their Toms & Moms program. If you know someone who could use their help, please have them call the shelter (425-822-6369) or email MEOW at
